Seizure and Epilepsy Healthcare Professional Certificate Program: Core 6 Modules

The Certificate Program for the Seizure and Epilepsy Healthcare Professional is an assessment-based certificate program that uses instructional design principles to deliver an online self-study educational course followed by post-assessments. This course will equip the learner with the tools they need to safely care for patients with Seizures and Epilepsy, while providing the type of quality care demanded by your institution. The primary purpose of this certificate program is to provide foundational knowledge to provide evidence-based care to patients who have seizures and epilepsy, who are admitted to an Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, and who are being evaluated for and/or undergoing surgery for medically refractory epilepsy.

Participants can earn 6 CE contact hours by completing the course and passing the post-assessment with a score of >80% or higher. Participants will receive a CE certificate and an American Board of Neuroscience Nursing (ABNN) certificate of added qualification as a "Seizure and Epilepsy Healthcare Professional" that indicates attainment of knowledge.

The content for the 6-modules is outlined below. You can find the full content outline and learning outcomes in the Participant Handbook on the website.
• Module I - Anatomy, Physiology, and Etiology of Epilepsy
• Module II - Seizures
• Modules III - Diagnosis and Assessment
• Module IV - Treatment
• Module V - Education and Self-Management
• Module VI - Special Populations with Epilepsy

Please note: If you work in a National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) accredited Comprehensive Epilepsy Center or if your facility is seeking NAEC accreditation, there will be a separate certificate program consisting of the 6 modules above plus 2 additional modules (totaling 8 modules) that will be available in Summer 2021. Completion of this 8-module course will give you a certificate of added qualification as a "Seizure and Epilepsy Healthcare Professional in a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center" and will meet the qualifications for NAEC accreditation.
